National Caesar Salad Day:
Sidewalk Egg Frying Day: It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk?!! Well, it’s true, the 4th of July IS so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk, so it’s no wonder or surprise that the fourth of July is also Sidewalk Egg Frying day. Incidentally, in case you’re wondering when this began, the earliest reference to this claim took place on June 11, 1899 in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
In case you’re thinking of giving this one a try, an egg must hit a temperature of at least 158F in order to coagulate and become firm.
National Country Music Day: What better way to celebrate the 4th than with Music from Great Artists like Toby Keith!
